Hello, I'm a little confused in using 'write'.
"write him a letter".
"write a letter to him."
but which of the following is right?
"I'm writing to him to ask for help"
"I'm writing him to ask for help"
You can use either one in this case, too.
As far as the phrase "write a letter to him" in English the 'to' or 'to him' is understood and does not have to be included. It's not wrong if you do include it, however.
